Communication Checklist for 0 - 4 years


The following is a communication checklist for children from birth to age four whose first language is English. Parents who make an initial assessment appointment with ACHIEVE Speech and Language may find it helpful to print this page, complete the checklist at home and bring it to the appointment (where the checklist can be discussed in detail with your Speech & Language Therapist).

 

**NOTE**: This page is simply a guideline and should not be used to diagnose speech/language impairment. Each child is different so a diagnosis can ONLY be confirmed by a Speech & Language Therapist.
